My wife researched about this place via Facebook for a while and today we had the opportunity to visit, it was an amazing experience and I would recommend it to everyone looking to interact with so many different loving animals with such unique stories. Some of these animals have survived incredibly hard situations and it is awesome to see them so happy and united walking around the property. It was totally heart warming and nothing short of amazing! My son is a 10 year old who had never interacted with Goats, Chicken and Cows so up close and he loved meeting them and getting to be around them. As far as the owner of the place, he is an amazing person who treated us with the utmost respect and kindness. He had a young lady who is a volunteer helping give us the tour, she was amazing too and very passionate about animals being loved, respected and free.
It's so clear that the wonderful people here care deeply about every single animal! We had such a great experience!
Kelly and Glenn provide a home, and a safe shelter, for unwanted farm animals. They give tours on the weekends to help educate and show the public how incredible these animals, they call family, really are. They both shared their enlightening paths into veganism after seeing these beautiful animals for the individuals they truly are. They promote compassion and freedom to ALL, and it definitely shines through!
Great experience! Very friendly humans and animals 😁 thank you so much for opening up your home and teaching us so much about your organization and mission ❤️
Thanks for giving me such a wonderful tour today! I enjoyed every minute! It was such a pleasure to meet you both and to spend some time with all the residents - especially Norman! He's so handsome!
Thank you so much for blessing us today with an amazing tour of your incredible farm. Everyone needs to visit and see the peaceful, loving life you are providing for these beautiful babies. It was such a wonderful experience!
Peaceful place on earth for the rescued animals
Wonderful people, amazing mission, so much kindness and love for all their animals. So glad I found them, drove over 2.5 hours but it was well worth it.
Glen and Kelly are the most amazing loving caring people. They take exceptional care of all their animals. Just continue doing what you're doing

Highly recommend! Great people running a great farm. Love their passion. Take the kids out for visit and show your support! Every dollar helps this wonderful non-profit.
Beautiful sanctuary where all the animals are loved and well cared for.
Took a tour. What fortunate animals to be rescued and placed here! The animals are all loved and well taken care of. Each one is named! Beautiful sanctuary. God bless!
Glenn and Kelly are beautiful souls who have the most compassionate hearts. They are so welcoming and treat visitors like family. Florida Rescue Farm is a unique and quirky little sanctuary and I'd highly recommend visiting!
This is an amazing place with wonderful people! They showed us around and told us each animals rescue story. I can’t wait to visit again very soon! The owners have big kind hearts!
Had an amazing experience at the Florida Rescue Farm Sanctuary with Kelly and Glen. What they are doing there is incredible, and the world needs more people like them. They are two of the nicest, genuine, and most hospitable people around. They have so much knowledge and fun stories to share about the animals and what it really takes to care for them. You know the animals have a good home there. If you are in the area and have the chance, I highly recommend reaching out to them for a visit to see the good they are doing, volunteer and donate if you can, and gain some real life lessons to help raise awareness.
This is heaven and the operators of this loving homestead are angels.
In a perfect world all farm animals would live like this. They are wonderful and I cannot thank them enough for taking in the young rooster I found in a parking lot. Now he will grow up safe, happy and loved!
We are able to help these animals because of caring people like you who give a litte to help many
Due to popular demand, we have started to offer not just our traditional Florida Rescue Farm t-shirts, but now pajama bottoms to match!
Modeled by the stylish Glenn, the pajama bottoms are black and white checkered, 100% cotton, and read "For the Animals" on the side. Tops are $25 and bottoms are $30. Both include free shipping within the United States. You are welcome to order below or email us at email@example.com for more information.
We greatly appreciate all donations. Our organization is entirely staffed by volunteers so 100% of your donations go directly to feed, supplements, shelter and vet care. As a 501(c)3 non-profit we rely solely on community support.
Your donation makes a difference in the lives of the resident animals and supports our educational efforts to enhance the lives of future generations.
We also accept recurring donations which are a tremendous help to the sanctuary. Our recurring donors provide for the daily needs of the animals and are a safety net we know we can rely on. Please click the donate button below or you can donate via text by texting RESCUEFARM to 44-321
Show your support
Order your Florida Rescue Farm T-shirt! It's a great way to show your support for these awesome animals!
We have a new line of t-shirts which are printed on shirts from an Accredited Participating Company of the Fair Labor Association. We felt it was important to not only support the animals on the sanctuary, but to do it in a way that treats the people making the shirts with respect and aligns to our moral values. We currently only have adult sizes, however we are ordering kid's t-tees and tank tops. If you want a style or size not listed send us an email at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll see what we can do. T-shirts are $25 with free shipping.
Donations come in many forms and in-kind donations are always a great benefit. Items that you may no longer have a use for can find a second life on the farm.
Do you have an old wheelbarrow lying around? How about that chain link fencing that’s just cluttering up a corner in your garage? We’re always looking for building supplies, tools, fencing, and numerous other things.
Managers and business owners can donate damaged feed or items and receive a tax deduction for their business. It’s a great way to turn food waste into a charitable donation! Contact us for more information

Meet the residents
Visitors and Volunteers
We are not like a traditional petting zoo-type experience. Most of our animals free-range during the day so you may be approached by a cow or goat looking for a scratch behind the ears! Much of the experience is observing and interacting with the animals in their natural environment.
We recommend volunteers visit first so they can meet the animals and see our process. There's always lots to do and we truly value our volunteers.
You can set up your tour date/time via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and you are also very welcome to call us at 941-209-9558 to chat about the sanctuary and set up a time to visit.
Please read our Visitor / Volunteer Disclaimer.
The primary purpose of Florida Rescue Farm, Inc. is to provide safety, shelter, and dignity for farm animals in need. This guiding principle, that all animals should be free from exploitation and suffering, extends to all aspects of our non-profit. Therefore it is our policy that only vegan food will be offered at Florida Rescue Farm, Inc. and at any event Florida Rescue Farm, Inc sponsors.
Although this seems obvious we felt it was important to have as a policy for the farm. We were inspired to do this by Animal Place’s Food for Thought Program which helps nonprofits adopt mission-driven menu policies for fundraising and sponsored events. Please take a moment to check out their website and please pass it on to any of your favorite non-profits.
